Innovative. Collaborative. Effective.
Long story short
Mark dedicated his legal career to helping those who struggle most. He started as a prosecutor because he wanted to protect the vulnerable but soon learned that the most vulnerable often sat at the other table. After leaving a major crimes division at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, Mark ventured into private practice at a large law firm. Still unsatisfied, Mark started his own practice to be able to serve his clients the way he would want to be represented. Mark is passionate about criminal defense, about helping the vulnerable, and restoring dignity to those who suffer most.
